If your basement doesn’t have waterproof foundation protection, you may find your home flooded and walls damaged when large amounts of snow melts or the spring thaw begins. When this happens, most homeowners are surprised to learn about winter basement flooding and foundation problems. Don’t be surprised, be prepared and learn what steps you can take during winter to prevent flooding and moisture for the coming spring.
Can I Schedule a Waterproofing Job During Winter?
If your home is in dire need of waterproofing ahead of the flooding that usually accompanies a spring thaw, there’s no reason to avoid scheduling winter jobs. Since basement waterproofing can be done at any time of the year, winter finishing is a good option. This type of work is messier and easier to do when the weather is nice; however, if the weather is dry enough, exterior basement waterproofing can be done in winter.
What Do I Need to Do?
You may not know how well the foundation and basement of your home is currently protected from water, so a preliminary assessment will probably be needed to understand what (if at all) needs to be done. If you’ve come to the conclusion that basement waterproofing is the right choice for your home, you’ll be happy to know that this process can be done at almost any time. After all, many people think that foundation waterproofing can only be done in summer (spring and autumn can be too wet). However, it is not; Basement and foundation waterproofing in winter is entirely possible.
